and this is the turn that we are concerned about, right across essentially ocean city, rehoboth, very close to our shores there and then it goes back and drifts and sits in north central p.a. is this the worse scenario? no. is it a bad scenario? yes. we're talking about winds even 65 miles per hour as it moves inland across the northern bay. so this is going to be a major storm. it's going to affect a tremendously densely populated area from d.c. up to new york and possibly all the way up into boston and again the time frame for us is monday night and tuesday. that's when the highest winds will occur. we'll have winds before then, but monday night and tuesday is the highest point of winds and the heaviest rain. we will come talk about things you can do the next couple days to prepare. >>> as hurricane sandy continues to churn out there on the atlantic coast, pepco is gearing up for what could be a disasterous weather smackdown through our region, once again, many thousands of us are likely to be in the dark, perhaps for days, but this is also an opportunity, a chance for pepco to demonstrate that

playing in the city seven years ago. you'll want to see that. too many americans are struggling to find work in today's economy. too many of those who are working are living paycheck to paycheck trying to make falling incomes meet rising prices for food and gas. more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office and fifteen million more are on food stamps. president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. my plan will create twelve million new jobs over the next four years helping lift families out of poverty and strengthening the middle-class. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message because we can't afford another four years like the last four years. ♪ >>> d.c. baseball history could be made tonight if the washington nationals can beat the philadelphia phillies. >> that's right. our colleague derek mcginty i
